    @cjkoger- A) Thank you very much :)
    B) Yes, as a matter of fact, I am wearing checked suspenders to school, with a pencil skirt. I taught in this today, I am not normal.

    @dorkmuffin- C) Thank you very much, not bad for 38. Lots of sunscreen :)

    Here was the outtake from today

    Cara, I had a lot of cool teachers, but none of them wore goth-check suspenders. That means you trump all of them.

    Cara you're rockin. I am staring down the barrel of 28 and do not like it one bit. At least I can make the numbers when I stand on the scale keep going lower :)

    @Alan Tyson-Thank you. I spent a long time in my 20s and early 30s trying to dress the way that other people told me that I should and trying to be "grown up." I reached a point a few years ago where I just didn't care anymore, I decided to wear what I want as long as I keep it slightly funky, but not so much that the administration harasses me about it.

    @Cara 38 years young I am, and I'm realizing that as well. More black, more leather, fuck the naysayers.

    The thirties are the BEST!!!!
    I always said that I was looking forward to my thirties, as you're old enough to know who you are and young enough to enjoy it. Also, before that, I pointed out that Gene Kelly did Singing in the Rain when he was 40! Now I'm in my thirties, I'm looking forward to my fourties... Because the thirties are so much better than anything that came before, 40 seems like just as much fun. :D

    You look fantastic, Cara. Chris, you've got nothing to worry about. The more you WORRY about getting older, the worse getting older is. Look forward to it, enjoy the time you have, and you'll find you age well. :)

    @Magnulus--well spake. My only 40s-related neurosis is at least getting onto the launchpad of a writing career by then, and I'm well on track for that.

    Besides, I'm still sexy.

    Thirties ARE the best. I miss the feeling of potential from when I was in my 20's, and I do feel that window diminishing, but egad, my brain is so much less frantic! I'm sure it doesn't hurt that most everyone I know tells me I look better now than I did a decade ago, and I get hit on more now than ever I used to. ;)

    Yup. 36 is shaping up to be A-OK.

    The only thing that sucks about being in your 40's is how unenlightened people react when they find out your in your 40's. I'm in better shape now than when I was in my 30's, but I do work in Hollywood and even if you aren't in front of a camera, after your 30's, you will experience some ageism. Some of it will come from people who are older than you. There is an animation studio (that will remain nameless) that has an unwritten rule that they didn't want to see show pitches from anyone older than 30. I guess anyone older doesn't have any good ideas any more. Don't mean to piss in anyone's cornflakes, but I thought I'd add to what I know about it. Don't get me wrong, it's not that bad, but just like being 20, it's not all roses.

    I told someone the other day that I was closer to 50 than 20 and that stopped them in their tracks. Good genes I guess but I've never looked my age. This can be both a blessing, in that I can pretend I am a hip young thing when I want, but professionally it can be hard to be taken seriously in meetings etc.

    @sneak - FOR REAL?! I'd have pegged you in early-mid 30s, and believed you're in late 20s if you said so.

    @Everyone else - y'all are making me antsy to reach my 30s :P I just hope to be as beautiful when I get there as all of you are.

    @Argos - yeah for real :-) but you're actually pretty accurate in your guess (and thank you..) - At 35 and a bit I am mathematically slightly closer to 50 than 20, but only by a few months, and usually people assume I'm in my twenties. It's just I *feel* my age more often now..
  7.  (11005.15)
    40 is just fine :-)

    I think that there is something quite telling about freedom of mind in ones late 30's/40's/older... if you have it then you seldom 'look your age'

    Failing that its the louche living (and the gin/absinthe/insertfavouritespirithere)

    Must do some picture postage... hmmm will think...

    Ahh, got it. I thought you'd meant you were in your 40s already and my thoughts were just "but he looks like my partner (age wise) How is he that old?" Edgar is 32.

    I think when I was younger I used to think people in their 30s looked older than they actually do. Now that I'm 24 and hang out with mostly 30-somethings, I realize most of them look like me.

    I just wish I could go back and fix things.

    Who doesn't?

    Serendipitous product placement. I don't even drink alcohol.

    Also, hi again!

    RE: age. I have the same problem as Argos; My fella's 31, and I no longer have friends younger than him. I'm 25. You all look the same age to me! Except Chris, he looks like a little baby.

    Also, I wanna go back to school just to have Cara as a teacher.

    You can take my place as an adult, I never intend to grow up. :D

    YaY! Now I just have to come to where you live and learn to be just like you!
